With two massive bestsellers in The Martian and Artemis, Andy Weir might be the current king of sci-fi. But only recently, Weir was a Silicon Valley programmer shopping a manuscript about an astronaut marooned on Mars. Failing to find a book deal, he published it on his website, crowdsourcing its accuracy with scientists. When readership grew, he released it on Kindle for 99 cents, the lowest price allowed. In three months it sold 35,000 copies, and Random House and Hollywood came calling. Tonight, he shares his thoughts about life and science with Inquiring Minds podcaster Kishore Hari. Book sales and signing to follow. Ticket price includes screening of "The Martian".
